Scan and Send service – staff and students

If you are unable to come to the library, we can provide a scan of an article or chapter from our print holdings.

Please ensure to check that the item is not available as an eJournal or eBook before you submit your request.


Many of our theses are freely available via our repository or via EThOS.

Please contact to enquire about any thesis which is not immediately available to download.

External Visitors

There is a dedicated photocopier for use by external visitors in the main Library. You will need a code and a PIN to use this copier so please ask the staff at the Welcome Desk for details.

There are strict limits to what you may legally copy. Copying is permitted for research or private study, and the maximum allowed is a single copy of up to one article from any one issue of a journal, or up to 10% or one chapter of a book.

Copying for commercial purposes requires the purchase of a Copyright sticker (£25 + VAT per article). Stickers can be obtained from the Welcome Desk on level 2.
